Genesis 1:11-12. GOD’s gift of food to grow.

Hello everyone!

I do hope all is well with you and all of you loved ones at all times.

In these days and times I see food in the stores not as stocked as it has been even a week ago. And when it is restocked the price of the items has gone up.

We have been led by the HOLY Spirit to growing our food and canning it for almost 10 years now. Then we have felt the need to have a garden to save money on groceries. Not thinking about food shortage. Just growing healthy foods with no chemicals.

So we got our Ball jars and lids with my 16 pint pressure canner and a water bath canner too. I got the USDA canning book that is free in pdf online and the Ball complete book on canning and went at it.

I watched a few of “Homestead Heart ” videos and thought that Marie Heart was such a professional at it, and a excellent teacher. She grew up canning her food and learning from her elders.

Making homemade tomato sauce with our homemade veggies!

Proverbs 21:20(NIV)

” In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but the foolish devours all he has.” It is all to easy in our modern society to get caught up in the cycle of buying our food one week at a time.

First time growing Okra!

When I had seen the flowers on may Okra plants, it surprised me at how beautiful they were! This was a chance to learn to grow them for pickling them.

Garlic growing well.


Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

Start your garden indoors in a large container with grow light if you need to. But start. I got white buckets and planted peas in one and tomato in another. The buckets are all food grade and safe to use.

Grow your own, eat your own.

Pass it forward, save your seeds. Stay blessed !

Peace and blessings ❤️

Jeremiah 29:5. Grow your garden.

Jeremiah 29:5

“Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;”

King James Version (KJV)

Hello all! It’s that time again!

Just sharing some pictures from our garden, from the past. Not every year will bring you all the goodies you want and need. But we do make an effort to try.

The way how the economy is as of today, we all must be prepared to dig in the dirt and get our hands dirty to grow our food. Forget about how it was back in the day of 3 years ago things are getting serious.

Getting ready to work in the garden is work. Not glamorous. You have to prep your beds or containers you need to grow food. You need the soil, manure and other natural nutrients as well. Egg shells, coffee grounds and even banana peels! These are not expensive because if you drink coffee, eat eggs or bananas you can use the remains.

It is hard work to keep the garden healthy. But with GOD leading and protecting us in all we do, we will be fine.

Genesis Chapter 1

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

I will suggest that if you do have a garden, have a fence too. Around all of your garden to help protect them from annoying critters like rabbits. They will kill off you young trees with their sharp teeth.

When you have a garden, be prepared to can your food as well so it will last you until the next year. Or give some away. It takes alot to feed a family for a year, so calculate what want to eat, how often by how many are in your family.

We do. And we need to grow what we want to eat. Some plants take up more space than others. But to grow string beans you will need at least a half pint per serving once canning it.

We do enjoy the food fresh. But your own canned food will always taste better than store bought.

Even seeing your flowers 💐. Sunflowers do need their space if you are growing the mammoth variety for the seeds for food.

I love sunflowers 🌻!

Your hard work will always make you smile. Especially after you sit back and you see how and what our beloved FATHER GOD has allowed you to grow and eat.

Tomatoes for homemade tomato sauce! It was yummy!

Have a blessed day! Start growing your food even if you just start in a 5 gallon bucket on your porch. It’s a start! Please click on the like button below. Pass this forward so others will get a blessing from the word of GOD too!

Peace and blessings!

The garden. Our little Eden in NY.

Hello all!

My hubby and I love to garden and grow some of our food. We do love to eat fresh veggies from onions, garlic, lettuces, greens and corn. I love to take pictures of the garden too.

We started last year with raised beds, for the ground was becoming very hard and hard to grow anything decent in it. The soil was loosing its richness for veggies but good for weeds. 🙂

It is easier to control the nutrients in the soil when you use raised beds. Manure, egg shells and whatever else the ground needs you can control. And then you will see that you plants don’t dry out so quickly as well too. At least we noticed this for us, it maybe different for you.

The beginnings of the raised beds all made by my husband in 2019 in the pictures below! 🙂

As you can see here, our yard soil is not the dark rich looking type of soil we need to grow good food in. But the yard soil will grow weeds.

This is a learning experience each year we garden. But as we learn we get better. 🙂 Praise and glory be to our GOD now and for all eternity for all of the blessings he does give us all.

Have a blessed day! I hope if you garden you will enjoy it as much as we do.
